We used Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens as the base structure of a student character instruction program a few years ago. The ideas seem kind of obvious, but sometimes bringing the obvious into focus makes students (and us) consciously think about things that we kind of know and take for granted otherwise.
I have come across his work from time to time, but always placed it on me "I'll get around to it list." Given his passing, I will take a closer look at his work and move it to another one of my reading lists: Read soon.
Interesing that I saw this post today. I've never read Seven Habits but for some reason lately I've been thinking about it. I usually don't read that sort of thing, but I may take a look at it now.
